Sing With All the Sons of Glory

Contemporary
Sing with all the sons of glory;
Sing the resurection song!
Death and sorrow, earth's dark story,
To the former days belong.
All around the clouds are breaking;
Soon the storms of time shall cease;
In God's likeness, saints awaking
Know the everlasting peace.
O what glory, far exceeding
All that eye has yet perceived!
Holiest hearts for ages pleading,
Never that full joy conceived.
God has promised, Christ prepares it,
There on high our welcome waits;
Every humble Christian shares it;
Christ has passed th' eternal gates.
Life eternal! Heaven rejoices;
Jesus lives Who once was dead;
Join, O man, the deathless voices;
Child of God, life up thy head!
Patriarchs from the distant ages,
Saits all longing for their heaven,
Prophets, psalmists, seers, and sages,
All await the glory given.
Life eternal! O what wonders
Crowned on faith; what joy unknown,
When amidst earth's closing thunders,
Saints shall stand before the throne!
O to enter that bright portal,
See that glowing firmament,
Know, with thee, O God immortal,
Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent!

Sing with all the sons of glory;
